Congressman Tim Murphy said the Coast Guard is expected to accept a bid this week to consolidate its three area centers into a building in or around the Chartiers Valley Shopping Center in Collier Township. “I question the wisdom of putting the Coast Guard headquarters so far from the water,” Murphy said in an exclusive interview to Patch.com. “They wanted to be in the Pittsburgh pool.

The first phase of the project includes 25 lots on Diamond and Sapphire courts that will be built by Heartland Homes. The other part of the first phase also includes 21 lots for Thomas Homes. However, township officials said there is a “trigger point” in which the developers can only build a combined total of 30 homes in the phase if the Main Street entrance to Bridgeville isn’t available.
